Practice and Meditation

The community at the San Francisco Buddhist Center is dedicated to supporting the development of spiritual friendship among those who wish to experience the benefits of Buddhist practice and meditation. Their system of practice emphasizes the following spiritual practices in addition to both samatha meditation and vipassana meditation: friendship/sangha, creativity/art, study, and ritual. There are ongoing classes, events, and rituals offered at the centre.

The Place

The centre is easy to find, right in the heart of the mission district between 21st and 22nd and between Valencia and Mission. It's a 3 floor yellow house with a large red door, between the back of New Mission Theater and Santora Sales. The San Francisco Buddhist Center is just 2 blocks from 24th Street Bart Station and close to several bus stops. They highly recommend taking public transport, walking, or biking, as parking can be hard at night. There's a place to park your bike (or your car) in the parking lot opposite them, the entrance is on 21st. There is also wheel chair accessibility. There is also another building that is called Dharmadhara, which is their meditaion center. It is located in the remote mountains of Lake County Ca.  The community has been cultivating this space as a refuge of beauty and contemplation for the last nine years and was completed in 2019.
